in this debate. we forget sometimes because we talk about how mitt romney is down in the race but he's still got a chance. only down 3 points nationally in the journal/nbc poll. in key swing points he's pulling even in florida, down 1, closer in virginia, down 2, he's still down by 8 percentage points in our poll in the state of ohio, which is a problem for this reason. look at the map of swing states. if you look at the ones where mitt romney is running within 4 points of president obama, places like florida, virginia, iowa, missouri where he's ahead, north carolina where he's even or ahead, you add all those to the solid states for mitt montana and the leaning states for mitt romney, he's still only at 263 electorate votes. he needs to bring ohio or other swe swing state, nevada, new hampshire. he's got an unparallel opportunity tonight to come on stage with the president of the united states and make his case, larry. >> john, the wall street journal poll and others have shown that romney has closed the gap a little pit with president obama at least nationwide and some of the sw

gallup tracking poll romney is close. you can complain he is not a great candidate but the race is a dead heat. >> let's be clear. he is under water. more voters view him unfavorably more than favorably. that's not true of obama and candidates under water barely win. hitting 50, a candidate at or over 50 wins. >> john, i have to go back to this and you may disagree and i appreciate that. mitt romney has a tax cut plan and he's not connecting it to middle-class voters. >> never talks about it. >> never talks about it. if you track his tax cuts and i did write a piece on this, you have huge savings, take-home pay for middle income families would go up a lot, like from 2,000 to as much as 10 to $12,000. to me that is golden if he would talk about it. reagan used to talk about take-home pay and how people would benefit and focus on the middle class. mitt doesn't do that. he gives a stump in ohio this past week and says don't look to me your tax cut is not have big and i'm going tyke away your deductions. what message is that? >> this not jack kemp. those that like the campian style of co

race with a republican who is trailing about the same amount that romney's trailing now and they reverse that and bush left the debates with a lead. that's the model. >> foreign policy still a wild card, too. and even some polls on the economy, romney seems for be doing better on those. two points on the gwu poll today, right? and we'll get rasmussen -- >> i didn't see gw. i saw a "washington post" abc poll showed two points among likely voters nationally. >> in was two on gwu, too. politico was two points. rasmussen and gallup at 5 and rasmussen at 2. >> polls it show obama up 11 in swing states. that sounds high to me. but in any case, obama's ahead, romney has to change something. he has a chance to do it. >> all right, john harwood, thank you. >> today is the start of the fourth quarter. and joining us is teach stanley, chief economist for peerpont securities. the lead story is how trade is slowing around the world. all of europe's problems getting exported to the rest of the world. what do you think this means just in terms of the fourth quarter and maybe a look into next ye

romney campaign is right to point out that horse race numbers move. did you know that last month mitt romney was leading barack obama on who do trust on jobs by 14 points? and right now, he's trailing by six points on the jobs question. >> why is that? >> i'll tell you why. i think the reason is not anything that's happened in the job market, but, rather, and there's a silver lining here for the romney folk, but rather that their campaign has been totally weak over the last three, four weeks and it has really reduced the notion of mitt romney as a credible challenger. you're not going to win right how when you're down six on jobs. >> he's not talking about his program. i agree with everything you said, but he can turn this around by convincing people next week in denver that he believes in this program, it's a jobs program, because every poll is showing americans think the economy is lousy. they just don't believe that mitt romney has a plan to turn things around. >> and they don't believe mitt romney. >> and he's changing the plan. these guys are calling me, and they're all sayi

this race. no republican has ever been elected president without it. this is a place where president obama has really targeted to try to take it off the table for romney. but when you look at the combination of states that romney has got to put together to get to 270 elect roral votes romney is behind in all three of those right now. he's looking to the debates and he's looking to some intensive campaigning with paul ryan to tray to make a difference. >> john, i heard a report on npr this morning talking about gary johnson, the former governor of new mexico, who's going to be running -- i think he's on the ballot in something like 47 states. you don't hear much about his campaign. you don't expect that it would make a difference too many places, but in some polls he's picked up as much as 6% of the electorate. do either the democrats or the republicans really give this much thought? >> i think republicans are a little more concerned. remember, gary johnson was an elected republican governor, and when you look at that strong libertarian chunk of the electorate, that's more of a part o

debate between president obama and mitt romney is tonight in denver. the focus is on domestic issues and expectations are set high. new jersey's republican governor chris christie told "face the nation" this whole race is going to turn upside down come thursday morning. this as the latest nbc "wall street journal" poll shows president obama holds a narrow 49-46% lead over romney. some 40% of voters say the country is moving in the right direction versus 53% who say it's on the wrong track. nearly 60% believe the u.s. economy is recovering, though. joining us now is steve murphy, a democratic strategist and managing partner at mvar, and gretchen hamill is a republican strategist and executive director at public notice. nice to have you both with us. steve, perhaps you can kick it off for us. what do you think tonight holds? >> you know, here's what barack obama has to do. the debate right now in the campaign is very heavily over economic policy going forward. that's where barack obama wants to focus. he will accuse mitt romney of seeking $4 trillion, $5 trillion in additional tax cuts for

? >> bottom line is that the whole race costs down to five states and probably only 11 counties. romney is losing his lead in those counties. and i think part of it is through mistakes that need not have been made. he was campaigning in toledo, ohio, which is never ever going to vote for him. what are they doing putting him there? but at any rate, i don't think the debates will change anything either the polls are showing one thing in spite of all the advertising, no americans are changing their opinion. so the whole thing comes down to voter participation. the democrats are apathetic and the republicans are not energized. so both sideses are having trouble getting their people to actually show up on that day. >> the swing voters, the small number of people -- >> i think the polls are showing for the first time in many elections there is no swing vote. it's only about how many of each side actually show up. it's voter participation, not swing. >> so all the debates can really offer is some sort of message that the people will key on. >> enough to say instead of watching a football game tha

just have too much hair on our head. >> more thing to worry about. the race is changing. we've seen that in our new polls out today. romney's pulled a little closer. down three points nationally. almost even in florida, down one. almost even in virginia, down two. still down eight in ohio. but it could change further as a result of this debate. debates are the one moment where both are side by side. want to run through some issues. on the issue of taxes, mitt romney has proposed a 20% across the both tax cut that he says will not increase the deficit and will not shift the burden to middle income taxpayers. yesterday in a radio interview he began to outline how he might pay for that, said he would limit tax deductions for families to $17,000. that is a step toward specificity, but barack obama can go after him on that. by the same token, romney can go after obama because obama's talked about reducing the corporate rate to 28%, but he hasn't specified how he'd pay for it. and then you have the issue of jobs. romney talks about the job record on net from the beginning of president oba

which will demonstrate mitt romney way up, we ha've got polls that indicat somehow he's way outside the margin of losing, from my perspective on the ground and what i see at home across the country it's a tight race and we're going to run this thing through the tape and in the end i believe in 42 days you'll see mitt romney pull ahead and win this thing. >> virginia is an important state. what is the swing factor, what are people watching closely? >> look, listen, our economy and unemployment numbers in virginia tend to be a little better than average but one thing that is particular and specific to virginia are these looming defense cuts. we have a very rich heritage of participation in the defense of our country in the commonwealth and with the ability for us to go forward as a country, virginia plays a very important role and when you see the president refusing to get involved with substituting these defense cuts it will have a real impact on the communities across our commonwealth and it means real jobs and it will mean real layoffs and i believe that will end up winning virgini

tightened up a little bit with the poll. >> reporter: they did. >> and it actually showed mitt romney is running neck and neck in florida? >> reporter: it is. look, there's two ways to divide up the battleground. there is the states that are just going to move with the direction of the race, right? which is florida, virginia, colorado, nevada. these are the four closest states. coming up on the outside with wisconsin. and then you have sort of the next three in the battleground which are iowa, new hampshire, and ohio. but florida in particular -- if you look at the three we did. i call it the mega state of flova, you get what i did there f-l-o-f-g-a. any of the battleground states we've done all yearlong. so it's not just that he's down a point, he's probably in the best position there than any of the battleground states outside of north carolina. >> i keep hearing people say that mitt romney's advisers think he can't do this unless he wins both florida and ohio. you know these electoral college votes, you know the map better than about anybody, is that what you think too? >> no, i ac
